Ipoh Home Dishes

Andy came back for the weekend, he has one week of study leave before his exam commencing in early May. He didn't bring back his laptop, just a book and it has been lying on his room table since he came back on Friday. What I meant is that the book he took back has been left untouched... untouchable... cos both he and the book are on "Sleeping Mode!"

Ok, lets forget about the book... I know he is more into Food when he is in Ipoh... so before he arrived, I went to the market to catch hold of what he loves to eat and hasn't been eating them for the past two months...

After Elin left, I cooked the remainder crabs for dinner
I followed her method of cooking but this time
I added some egg white to the crabs ...

clams with chillie and yee heong leaves

miniature french beans...
stir-fried with dried prawns

lotus with groundnuts soup...

Aaron, don't drool..
Next week is your turn...
Just let me know your menu...
then mum here will go for "Food Consultation!"


  1. I am drooling over here. I have never cooked crabs before simply because I don't know how to, sweet and sour crab is my favourite.
